Support Training and Infection Control for DA I

Dear Members of the Virginia Board of Dentistry,

As an educator and member of the VDHA and a clinician with over 25 years of practice, I support the requirement of the DA I to complete training in Infection Prevention and Control.  This training is readily accessible as a continuing education course provided by any of the many educational sponsors listed in the Regulations.

This is the very least that can be required for the Board to ensure the public and entire dental team are protected.

Thank you for the opportunity to be heard as a supporter of training regulations for the DA I.

Kelly Tanner, PhD, RDH
